The Hess Collection Chardonnay Napa Valley Su'Skol 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Tasting Notes Aromas of cantaloupe, guava, pineapple followed by a concentrated and rich palate of Asian pear, with a citrus finish. The bright acidity and creamy mouthfeel are well-balanced in the mid-palate. 30% new French oak gives a hint of vanilla in the background.

Medium-bodied and understated, with floral and apple flavors, plus hints of butterscotch, mineral and apple skin. Finishes with delicate flavors. Drink now.

Filled with golden, ripe fruit, this wine is soft and plump. It has a waxy warmth and a hint of acidity that will melt right into a cheese souffleacute;.

Spicy, floral and perfumed, with hints of pear, nectarine and tangerine, shaded by light oak, making it elegant and delicate in style. Drink now through 2005.

A lush, opulent Chard marked by oaky aromas and flavors. The underlying flavors are of tropical fruits, enhanced with vanilla, buttered toast and smoky spices. Drinks very rich and flamboyant; a show-off wine.

Leuchtendes Gelb mit lindengrünen Reflexen. Holunderblüten und frische Ananas in der burgundischen Nase, auch weisse Mandeln, Vanille und feine Exotik dahinter. Zartcremiger Auftakt mit Quitte und Williamsbirnen, gute Balance und verführerisches Barrique-Toasting, herrlich frisch auch in der Mitte, an grossen Chablis erinnernd, Ananas und weisse Schokolade im sanft ausklingenden Finale.

Offers a mix of dusty, cedary oak and ripe tropical fruit thatrsquo;s full-bodied, intense and balanced, ending with subtle nutmeg notes. Drink now through 2011.
